SYSTEM OF A DOWN To Issue "Toxicity" Outtakes

SYSTEM OF A DOWN are planning on issuing the previously-leaked, unreleased Toxicity outtakes which were the subject of much online speculation last month.

"We are gonna release some of them, mixed the way we would actually put them on an album," bassist Shavo Odadjian told MTV. "But we're gonna do it in a way where we put some of those, some soundtrack songs that haven't been [widely] released, [etc.]"

The as-yet-untitled album, which does not yet have a title or release date, may also feature "Shame", SYSTEM OF A DOWN's collaboration with the WU-TANG CLAN for 2000's Loud Rocks compilation.

"Fans want new music," drummer John Dolmayan said. "We're the same way. We have bands that we like, and whether they release it or not, we're interested in hearing new material from them. It's not a really good representation from the band, though, but if fans like it, more power to you."

"We recorded 33 songs because we had that many songs that we wanted to choose from," Odadjian added. "We're a band that keeps writing and recording — we don't know when it's over. They have to sorta pull us out of the studio."
